Challenge Course

Due to COVID-19, the UGA Challenge Course is currently closed and will reopen at a later date. For the latest updates and additional resources follow us on Instagram @ugarecsports.

What is the UGA Challenge Course?

The UGA Challenge Course is a series of high and low elements comprised of cables, logs and ropes that your group will navigate as a team. You’ll be coached by our skilled Challenge Course Facilitators along the way; they’ll help you focus on your group goals for the day, then transfer what you’ve learned to your workplace, group or organization.

How do I schedule?


Half-day, full-day, custom, and multi-day programs are available.

How do I become a facilitator?

The UGA Challenge Course offers facilitator training sessions twice in the fall and once in the spring.  Register here!
